The Spinto Band

on Monday, July 17, 2006
I first(/last) mentioned Delaware six piece The Spinto Band in my brief recap of the Great Escape festival (link) where they were easily one of the best bands on show. Now they've gone and given us a free golden oldie, they're too kind. Seeing as they made numerous albums before their major debut, it's a nice insight to the early days (it was written during their senior year at high school in 2000).

Pavement, Arcade Fire and The Flaming Lips seem to all be mentioned when describing The Spinto Band but 'Japan Is An Island' reminds me of early 00's Weezer (fingers crossed they're not dead and buried!) but with beeps. Download the mp3 from their website (link). Prior warning - You have to sign up to their mailing list but you might want to anyway I guess.

The track isn't quite upto the standard of these gems though:
The Spinto Band - Oh Mandy
The Spinto Band - Brown Boxes

Buy 'Nice And Nicely Done' from HMV.
